What exactly is a domain backorder? How does the backorder process work?
When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over eight weeks when it's inactive, but could still be renewed by the current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this type of domain names. If a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it is deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the chance to acquire a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by some other person up to now. In case the domain is extremely attractive, a couple of companies may try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a particular person will have that domain name. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you try to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
You'll be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel as we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar company and we provide the service as part of all cloud hosting solutions. Because of this, you won't need a separate account and you'll be able to manage the recently purchased domain name and the hosting space for it in a single place. The service has its own section in the Control Panel where you will discover all domains scheduled to be erased in the following 5 days. For a more precise search, you will be able to use several filters that we have added - minimum and maximum number of characters, domain extension, exact deletion date, etc. You will also be able to search only for domains that contain dictionary words or set a phrase of your choosing. Getting a domain name from the list will take you only a mouse click and in case we're unable to register the desired name, your money won't be wasted and you will be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals and / or backorders later on.
